Quick review - Chocomania Body Scrub & Born Lippy Toffee Lip Balm from The Body Shop


Apr 16, 2012 Bath & Body , 7 Comments

I think I’ve said enough times on here that I don’t often go to TBS as I can never find anything exciting these days. For the last two years I’ve had a Love Your Body card and only used it a few times. I happened upon TBS a few weeks ago as I was looking for a gift for my lovely friend Cherry who started a new job recently.

Chocomania Body Scrub – Who can resist a chocolate body scrub right? Well not me, and what I really like about this exfoliation delight is that is smells like cocoa as opposed to a sugary sweet smell. This contains Fair Trade cocoa butter, organic cane sugar, soya oil, and brazil nut oil and is a lovely squidgy scrub that is actually more gentle that it looks. You can get good friction on dry skin but if you want a smoother paste then apply to wet skin. This won’t take ten layers of skin off, but it will give you a good seeing to and leave your skin with a nice sheen.

Get Lippy Toffee Lip Balm Stick – I need another lip balm like a hole in the head but this is different because it has colour albeit subtle for peeps like me who hate lipstick! Yes, yes I just said I hate lipstick. Anyway this contains Fair Trade marula oil and beeswax which helps keep the moisture in and also gives your lips a nice sheen.

So what goodies have you been hauling from TBS lately? Anything else I should know about?

    I’ve been using the chocomania body scrub too! For me it’s just…ok. I prefer grittier scrubs. I’m also using the chocomania body butter, which is such a relief for my dry skin.

      I know what you mean the scrub isn’t that gritty but I really love the scent. Is the body butter cocoa scented too?

    I’m just back from TBS,i’ve got one close to work and I bought two half price vouchers at Groupon to be spent on TBS.
    I bought foot soak and hand cream but was very tempted by the lip balms altought I would prefer the pomegranate one. Still have one last voucher to spend :-))

    The lip balm sounds interesting. Not that I need another lip balm either, but still I’m very tempted to try it..

      Maybe you could drop some hints to friends, boyfriends, or family that you need another lip balm! xoxo
